Irish sea seen from Wallasey, Merseyside.

Mainly landscape work, occasionally interiors, mainly in areas where urban sprawl, industrial architecture, artefacts of infrastructure, retail and recreational spaces, derelict and dysfunctional structures, traces of human presence and activity, and the ever present and often encroaching natural world, meet in strange alliances. Preferred lighting is ordinary daylight.

Robert Brook: photographer, one time film maker, digital artist: had pictures exhibited in public galleries, purchased by public and private collections, worked on music album covers, won an award for film work before specializing in photojournalism and editorial photography for many years. Since 2012 has been working mainly on personal projects.



Projects:
